Hi, this is my first visit and my first post. I had a heart attack out of the blue in December 2015. I was stented and then had a second stent in May of this year. My problem is that I am so exhausted and all the doctors ever say is 'its because of your meds'. well, I have a job which I love but still haven't worked a full week since the event. Work are being great about it but I'm just so ridiculously tired all the time. Medication is Ticagrelor, Aspirin 75mg, Omeprazole 40mg, Candesartan 8mg, 30mg Paroxetine (taken for 30 years), and Atorvastatin 80mg.
Previously a smoker I quit one week post MI.
Cardiologost suggested taking Co-Enzyme Q10 200mg twice per day to ease the cramps.
Am I depressed, over medicated or unwell? That's the question. I've neve had high blood pressure
I would totally appreciate any suggestions which might help me get back to my normal self.
As a PS ... I'm putting on so much weight which my cardiologist says is the meds!!!
